If so, then a few hundred people scattered across Fukushima could eventually die from the Fukushima Silk radiation. But others say there is no evidence of increases in cancer among populations around the world who have been exposed at the levels experienced in Fukushima. So Fukushima may have been one of the safer places to be during the tsunami. While thousands along the coast drowned, it may be that nobody either has or will die from the radiation released by the accident.
But there have been Fukushima Silk of other ways to die. And there have been real and profound health consequences of the nuclear accident that doctors say the authorities cannot escape, Fukushima Silk.
For one thing, the evacuation was chaotic. The able-bodied were herded out, but others were forgotten. Some invalids and old people left behind died of dehydration and hunger in their homes, says Ochi.
Somewhere between 40 and 60 old people died either through being left behind or because of the immediate trauma of their removal. A study of more than 1, old people in local care homes found that those who were evacuated were three times more likely to have died in the next two years than those who had not been evacuated.
A further wave of deaths resulted from stress among evacuees, says Leppold. There have been around 85 suicides linked to the accident and evacuation. Many more people have fallen into non-lethal depressions. They drink more, exercise less, spend hours watching videos and no longer feel in charge of their Fukushima Silk or able to understand what had happened to them.
A quarter of young girls surveyed feel they might not be able to have a baby because of the accident. Many parents fear their children will get thyroid cancer. But these are real psychological and social consequences of the accident — and are surely just as much the responsibility of the operators of the plant as any radiological consequences.
And they mean that the prospects for repopulating the region, including four ghost towns wherepeople once lived, remain small. The stricken reactors still contain terrifying amounts of radiation. Cleaning up the mess will take decades and tens of billions of dollars. But outside, away from a few hotspot zones in the mountains, most of the radioactive isotopes that fell in the evacuated zone have now decayed away and huge amounts of contaminated soil and vegetation have been bagged up and removed.
The government says it should be safe to return once doses fall below 20 millisieverts a year. That is seven times average background levels from natural radiation, but much lower than the level experienced by millions of people worldwide from natural radiation, including many in Britain.
Yamashita believes that policy is too cautious. He argued right after the disaster for a threshold of millisieverts a year. He believes the psychological risks of staying away have long exceeded the radiological risks of returning. Many doctors I spoke to quietly agreed with him. But in truth most evacuees do not want to go back. However, they also announced that radiation levels had declined enough in some towns located just beyond the original km evacuation warning zone that residents could return to their homes there.
Beginning in Julyevacuation orders were lifted in some areas characterized by lower levels of radiation both within and beyond the km evacuation warning zone. By March all evacuation orders in the areas outside the difficult-to-return zone which continued to sequester some square km [about square miles] had been lifted. A study on the effects of the accident on fish and marine products showed that the contamination level had decreased dramatically over time, though the radioactivity of some species, especially sedentary rockfish, remained elevated within the exclusion zone.
A second, but smaller, nuclear accident took place in August when approximately tonnes tons of irradiated water used in ongoing cooling operations in reactors 1, 2, and 3 was discharged into the landscape surrounding the Fukushima Daiichi facility. TEPCO officials reported that the leak was the result of an open valve in the short barrier wall that surrounded several of the tanks used in radioactive Fukushima Silk storage.
